Slightly hazy golden light orange with a small white head. Aroma is banana, spicy, classic blegian smelling but not too interesting. Taste is: overripe banana, spicy, citrusy, bit grape actually. Quite nice...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden orange color, mediumsized white head, some lacing on the glass. Aroma is lightly spicy with chamomile, grapes, and perfume. Flavour is a bit more spicy than the aroma, there’s chamomile and white wine. Rather acidic, but not that bitter. Dry, lightly warming finish. Lively carbonation with small bubbles. Mediumbodied.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2013 (11/4/2010 - bottle) A slightly hazy, orange amber body with basically no head (bad glass maybe?). The aroma has strong yeast tones; dough, overripe fruit, some alcohol and mild sweet toasted malt. Very sweet up front with a slight tangy-sourness that creeps up as the beer travels back. Pretty acidic, and a bitter aftertaste of orange peel. Maybe a little too acidic for my liking, but I like the sourness at the same time. A little flat, too. The alcohol becomes more noticeable as time goes by, and the aftertaste gives way to the warm alcohol sensation in the mouth.
I might try another bottle just to see if this one’s a bit off. It’s not bad.
(03/06/2013 - bottle) Hazy orange body, wisp of a head. Sweet floral and Belgian yeast aroma; honey, flowers, banana, medium spice (clove, allspice), grape, pear. Medium to full body, some carbonation, slightly sticky mouthfeel. Flavor of grape/white wine, light spice, yeast, moderate to heavy sweet.

Although this isn’t really my style, this beer was quite impressive nonetheless. The Belgian yeast and the malty sweetness mixes perfectly with the hints of white wine. Minimal head. The aroma is very floral. Flavor is a little sour (like a saison), tangy, and sweet. The malts and hops are hard to describe because they aren’t really present... it feels more like you’re drinking white wine. It’s very drinkable and light-bodied, which allows the high ABV to sneak up on you. A unique experience.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour golden with small white head. Aroma bursting with great white wine notes and abundant acidity. Great notes of sourness balanced with fruity (cherry, pear) sweetness. Flavor is far less straight forward, with subtle sweetness blunted by assertive belgian yeast and sour notes, finishing very dry. Probably takes a more sophisticated palate to detect the chamomile. Interesting, but doesn’t quite come off.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle served in a tulip. Pour is hazy orange with two fingers of sudsy white head on top. Nose is yeast, bananas, grapes, flowers, candied sugar, and a zesty spice which I cant quite identify. Taste is delivered pretty verbatim when comparing to the nose. This was very drinkable in every respect, and worth the sample, but I find myself enjoying the Belgian yeast strain less and less as time progresses. If you are a fan of the Belgians, I would imagine this one to be rated at about a 4/5.
